Great day in South La.


Got my mojo headed in the right direction this morning with a 4.3 mile run.  My back has been hurting – one of the bonuses that accompanies my female-essence ;].  So, I smeared Bio-Freeze – LOVE that stuff – highly recommend it; it was recommended to me by a massage therapist & I wouldn’t be without it for muscle aches.  Anywho, there’s a pretty mundane looking part of my neighborhood on the backside, but I have made it my favorite spot to run.  It’s just a big, grassy field with a couple of bulldozer tracks running through it, and I love running through there.  So, I did 2 of my miles through there & it was all it always is.  And I was extra excited because my average time was 9:05 per mile & that’s really good for me due, once again, to the above-stated reason…

Now, I’m looking toward the rest of the day with bittersweet anticipation – my 16 year old will be a senior next year & I’m going to register him today for next year.  He knows how much I adore him, but I still tell him, “You’ll never know how much I love you until you are a parent yourself.”  And it’s so true.  And prayer?  Oh, wow, I don’t think I’ve ever prayed more in my life than I have for my children, and especially my son because he drives and is so close to adulthood. I look at my daughters and I just relish in their sweetness and innocence.  I used to see the same look in my son’s eyes, but, alas, we can’t shield them from everything, as much as we would like to.  What I see in his eyes now still reflects his beautiful, discerning spirit, but with undertones of maturity.  He is a wonderful young man. 

Anywho, that’s it for now…motherly duties are calling…
